Historical Information

Albemarle County was named for William Anne Keppel, second earl of Albemarle, and governor of Virginia from 1737 to 1754. It was created by a statute of 1744 and formed from Goochland County; part of Louisa County was added in 1761 and islands in the Fluvanna (now the James) River in 1770. The court met for the first time on 8 February 1745. The county seat is the city of Charlottesville.

An act passed by the General assembly on 1866 January 20 required clerks of counties and corporations to keep record of property lost during the Civil War including enslaved people who were emancipated. Clerks were to record this information in a book kept for that purpose and the original papers stored in a safe place.
